In many parts of the world, open-air markets are still the primary way grain is sold. An honest and generous merchant will take a basket, pour some grain into it, and press it down to make room for more.

The first few weeks living in Paris were so cold, but it was January, after all. Even the heat could not keep up with the freezing temperatures outside. I was so thankful for my new friend.

It was all that downhill skiing as a kid that did my knee in, and now that I am older, I am certainly feeling the effect. Even taking a walk can be painful. I have found myself hobbling to avoid the pain of a knee. There is one big problem with hobbling, and that is that it makes other joints hurt as I compensate for the weak knee. Hobbling isn’t the way it should be, and it isn’t much fun either!
